12. Darla Einstein
Darla had just finished throwing a birthday party for her young daughter Aly when Phoebe Forrester called her to say she was stranded on the side of the highway with a flat tire. Unfortunately, Phoebe had also called her mother, Taylor, who’d had a couple of drinks earlier in the day and was now rushing to her daughter’s aid. It was a foggy night, and as Darla was changing Phoebe’s tire, Taylor’s vehicle came speeding towards her. Taylor hit Darla, who passed away in the hospital shortly afterward. The loss of this character was a major letdown to fans as B&B lost a favorite character and a well-liked couple (Thorne and Darla) at the same time.
